  1. So glad that everything went well, Chris is an absolute trooper. Hopefully we'll catch up at the rearranged fixture. Just wondering what Chris does for work and any family reliance on him? Perhaps we could consider a collection, if required??
  2. Thanks, Guys, just glad I could help in some way.
  3. Forum To Shut Down Next Month

    I've just donated. It's not a great amount, but I hope it helps. Keep up the good work 👍
  4. Where do you start! The game itself was played in great spirits and was end to end, with some fantastic finishing, in my opinion. It was a roller-coaster of emotions, Perranwell making it 3-3 with roughly 10 or so to go, only for Gavin Boon to make it 4-3, less than 60 seconds later. The game was strange for me, as I made two substitute appearances. But all of this is irrelevant, given the events of the 86th minute. Following two players going for the ball in a strong but fair challenge, we heard a crack which we thought was shinpad on shinpad, but unfortunately it wasn't. And in a very calm almost blasé fashion, young Chris Jones asked our linesman to call an ambulance as he'd broken his leg and to be fair, his diagnosis was spot on! I take my hat off to the guy as he sat on the pitch and dealt with the incident so calmly. I ran over to his side of the pitch and the fantastic players and management of both sides were supporting his leg, and once I'd cut his sock and boot off, to assess the injury and check for circulation, the injury was pretty obvious. We all did our best to stabilise Chris, keep him warm and prevent any further complications, especially with circulation and infection amongst other things. Before the ambulance arrived, which I must say was fairly swift & they deserve a whole lot of credit, as they've been getting a hammering in the press recently! As expected, he's off to derriford for surgery and I would like to wish him a speedy recovery. On another note, I love football as much as the next guy and we all get carried away with our passion, rivalries & desire to win, but today puts it into perspective and everything was put to one side as two teams worked as one, to help a fellow footballer 👏
  5. Ahead of Trevor’s funeral on Friday ...

    I'm really disappointed that I can't make it on Friday, but I'm unfortunately in hospital with a family member. I'm sure that there will be a large turnout, to give this legend of Cornish football, an amazing send off x
  6. Let's just hope the game goes ahead, following this evening's rain & tomorrow's forecast. Then we can hopefully end up talking about a great local derby. Merry Christmas 🎄
